The Flying Penguin is a haven, offering complete relaxation close to nature yet within easy reach of the city. Featuring a family-sized penthouse as well as two cozy suites for two, this farmhouse-styled holiday accommodation is situated in Simon's Town. It is a peaceful getaway, allowing visitors a complete escape whilst enjoying the breathtaking location and stunning views. It is only a short walk from one of the best swimming beaches that the Cape Peninsula has to offer.

With its many features, The Flying Penguin can accommodate all guests in luxury. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and shower, with the penthouse offering an additional victorian slipper bath. All rooms have a flat screen television and wifi internet, plus there is a modern music system in the penthouse. All features contribute to the contemporary comfort and convenience that The Flying Penguin B&B offers its visitors, all year round.

The Flying Penguin is set against a hill with stunning views of the bay below and an uninterrupted vista from Hangklip to Clovelly. A good size balcony and patios allows for sundowners in comfort. It is perfect for a romantic break, a family holiday or to get away to the wonders of the south peninsula.

We are just 5 minutes away from the centre of Simon's Town with all of its charming boutique stores, and only moments from the No 1 beach in the world: Boulder's Beach. The guesthouse is situated approximately six minutes stroll to Fisherman's Beach below us. Fisherman's Beach, with its warm water and gentle waves, is extremely popular with families and children.

You can choose to walk to Fisherman's Beach and play in the waves, relax on the sand or on the granite boulders, or catch a glimpse of the penguins that sometimes wander further afield from Boulders. We've even swum with otters at the beach.

Simon's Town and False Bay are blessed with warmer water, as opposed to the Atlantic Seaboard, making for blissful swimming and playing in the waves.

Simon's Town is a maritime naval town and home to the African Penguin colony at Boulders Beach. Steeped in history and tradition, Simon's Town has many adventures and activities on offer from boat trips to kayaking, scuba diving, beaches, museums, golfing, fishing, tennis, hiking and more.

We are less than a 10 minute drive to the Cape Point Nature Reserve. Cape Point falls within the southern section of Table Mountain National Park. The natural vegetation of the area, fynbos, comprises the smallest but richest of the world's six floral kingdoms.

We are a Pet Friendly, non-smoking establishment.
